• Erland's Occasional Quiz - it's music time

    From Erland Sommarskog@21:1/5 to All on Sun Oct 31 20:21:52 2021
    It is time for one my occasional quizzes again. This time it is a
    music quiz. There are 15 clips. For each clip there are one to three
    questions, with a total of ten points per clip. There are also some
    small hints with each clip. The music ranges from classical to rock
    and a few items in between.

    As always, no other aid than your own knowledge and post the answers to
    the newsgroup. I am aiming at posting the results on Saturday 6th.

    Have fun!


    1. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/01.mp3
    This is from one of the most famous classical works you can find,
    although the clip is not from the very famous part of this work.
    a) Name the composer. (5p.)
    b) Name the work. (5p.)

    2. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/02.mp3
    This is the opening from an album from the height of the fusion era,
    and this song has become a standard well beyond the fusion style,
    recorded by many artists.
    a) Name the band. (5p.)
    b) Name either the tune or the album. (5p.)

    3. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/03.mp3
    This is the opening from the first album of this classic
    heavy-metal band. Since the the band, the album and the song
    all have the same name, there is only one question.
    a) Give that name. (10p.)

    4. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/04.mp3
    Steeleye Span are known as a folk-rock band, but here they are
    tackling a song from musical play from the first half of the 20th
    century. On the Steeleye Span album, they use an alternate title
    which you can hear in the clip.
    a) Give the title normally used (and which is also is the name of
    the character singing the song in the play) or give the name of
    the play itself. (5p.)
    b) Give one of i) The composer ii) The author of the original
    lyrics or iii) or the translator of the English version. (5p.)

    5. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/05.mp3
    This piece of music is the oldest in this quiz. It is also one
    of these really famous works that everyone knows about.
    a) Name the composer. (5p.)
    b) Name the work. (5p.)

    6. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/06.mp3
    This is a song with the Swedish singer Kal P. Dal named "Kungens Knall".
    It is a cover with Swedish lyrics loosely drawn from the original,
    recorded by a Canadian band. Although Kal P. Dal does not retain
    the most famous gimmick in the original, you may still be able to
    spot the song.
    a) Name that Canadian band. (5p.)
    b) Give the original English title. (5p.)

    7. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/07.mp3
    This is from a album released just a few months back with duets
    for cello and piano. Some of these pieces were originally written
    for that format, while others have been rearranged. Beethoven is
    the dominating composer, but this is a piece from 1967.
    a) Give the composer. (5p.)
    b) Give the name of the piece. (5p.)

    8. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/08.mp3
    A classic from the big-band era. Beware that I've cut out about
    15 seconds from the clip, which is quite long enough anyway.
    a) Give the band or the band leader. (5p.)
    b) Give the name of the song. (5p.)

    9. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/09.mp3
    This artist was known for assuming several different personas, and
    the title of this song is exactly the name of maybe the most
    well-known of these personas.
    a) Name the artist (5p.)
    b) Give the name of the song and the persona. (5p.)

    10. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/10.mp3
    This is the end of a popular orchestra piece which repeats the
    same melody a number times with a crescendo for each repetition
    until this leads to the very quick breakdown that you hear in the
    clip.
    a) Name the composer. (5p.)
    b) Give the name of this work. (5p.)

    11. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/11.mp3.
    This is a song with Donna Summer called "Protection". It is not
    one of her big hits, but maybe you can still spot the song-writer,
    who is one of the most famous artists of our days - but
    certainly not as a disco artist. To my knowing, this is the only
    song that the artist wrote for summer. You can also hear this
    artist on the solo guitar towards the end of the clip.
    a) Name the song-writer. (10p.)

    12. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/12.mp3
    This is a home recording, so don't try to identify the band. But
    once the moped has faded away you will hear a well-known melody.
    a) Name the composer. (5p.)
    b) Give the name of the piece or the work it is drawn from. (5p.)

    13. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/13.mp3

    a) Name the band. (5p.)
    b) Name the song. (5p.)

    14. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/14.mp3
    Save for a short piano introduction, this is the opening from a
    very classic jazz album. Note that the artist, composer and
    band leader has yet to join in on the tune when the clip ends.
    a) Name this artist and band leader. (5p.)
    b) Name the album or just the song. (5p.)

    15. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/15.mp3
    This song was written in 1931, but it was its inclusion in a film
    that this recording is taken from that made the song immortal.
    a) Name the song. (4p.)
    b) Name the film. (4p.)
    c) Name the actor singing (2p.)

    This quiz is over and Stephen W Perry is the winner! Yours are the
    glory and setter of the rec.games.trivia playlist for the next 24
    hours. All hail Stephen.

    There were only three entrants, and I am not entirely surprised given
    the narrow them of the quiz. What did surpsrise me, though, was that
    all entries were really good! There was not a single stumper.

    Here is the scoreboard:

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 Total

    a) Name the composer. (5p.)
    b) Name the work. (5p.)

    Ludvig van Beethoven, Symphony no.9 ("Ode to Joy"). This is

    This is the opening from the first album of this classic
    heavy-metal band. Since the the band, the album and the song
    all have the same name, there is only one question.
    a) Give that name. (10p.)

    Black Sabbath. Those in the know, presumably knew the answer
    before listening to the clip.

    4. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/04.mp3
    Steeleye Span are known as a folk-rock band, but here they are

    century. On the Steeleye Span album, they use an alternate title

    of these really famous works that everyone knows about.
    a) Name the composer. (5p.)
    b) Name the work. (5p.)

    Antonio Vivaldi, The Four Seasons.
    More precisely this is from the first movement of the Winter

    6. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/06.mp3
    This is a song with the Swedish singer Kal P. Dal named "Kungens Knall".
    It is a cover with Swedish lyrics loosely drawn from the original,
    recorded by a Canadian band. Although Kal P. Dal does not retain
    the most famous gimmick in the original, you may still be able to
    spot the song.
    a) Name that Canadian band. (5p.)
    b) Give the original English title. (5p.)

    Bachmann Turner Overdrive, You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet.

    7. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/07.mp3
    This is from a album released just a few months back with duets
    for cello and piano. Some of these pieces were originally written

    the dominating composer, but this is a piece from 1967.
    a) Give the composer. (5p.)
    b) Give the name of the piece. (5p.)

    Jimi Hendrix, Purple Haze

    8. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/08.mp3
    A classic from the big-band era. Beware that I've cut out about
    15 seconds from the clip, which is quite long enough anyway.
    a) Give the band or the band leader. (5p.)
    b) Give the name of the song. (5p.)

    Glenn Miller (Band), Chattanooga Cho-Cho

    I recently picked up a greatest hits album with Glenn Miller, and
    my original idea was to use "In the Mood", which I have another
    recording of. But was I amazed when I heard this song that I
    recognized - it might be forty years sinc last time I heard it!

    The clip was long, because I wanted to include the intro with the
    train simulation, the main theme, and "Teneesee" in the vocals.

    9. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/09.mp3
    This artist was known for assuming several different personas, and
    the title of this song is exactly the name of maybe the most
    well-known of these personas.
    a) Name the artist (5p.)
    b) Give the name of the song and the persona. (5p.)

    David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust.

    10. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/10.mp3
    This is the end of a popular orchestra piece which repeats the
    same melody a number times with a crescendo for each repetition
    until this leads to the very quick breakdown that you hear in the
    clip.
    a) Name the composer. (5p.)
    b) Give the name of this work. (5p.)

    Maurice Ravel, Bolero

    11. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/11.mp3.
    This is a song with Donna Summer called "Protection". It is not
    one of her big hits, but maybe you can still spot the song-writer,
    who is one of the most famous artists of our days - but
    certainly not as a disco artist. To my knowing, this is the only
    song that the artist wrote for summer. You can also hear this
    artist on the solo guitar towards the end of the clip.
    a) Name the song-writer. (10p.)

    Bruce Springsteen (giggle for Springstein!)

    I have always thought that it sounds very much like Springsteen,
    even this is a discp-type album, produced by Quincy Jones. Beides
    The Boss, Roy Bittan from the E Street Band is also sitting in.

    12. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/12.mp3
    This is a home recording, so don't try to identify the band. But
    once the moped has faded away you will hear a well-known melody.
    a) Name the composer. (5p.)
    b) Give the name of the piece or the work it is drawn from. (5p.)

    Edvard Grieg. In the Hall of the Mountain King from Peer Gynt.

    Peer Gynt is a stage play by Henrik Ibsen for which Grieg wrote
    the incidental music.

    13. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/13.mp3
    Everybody knows this band. This is just one of their many hits.
    a) Name the band. (5p.)
    b) Name the song. (5p.)

    The Beatles, Day Tripper.

    14. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/14.mp3
    Save for a short piano introduction, this is the opening from a
    very classic jazz album. Note that the artist, composer and
    band leader has yet to join in on the tune when the clip ends.
    a) Name this artist and band leader. (5p.)
    b) Name the album or just the song. (5p.)

    Artist: Miles Davis.
    Album: Kind of Blue.
    Tune: So What.

    15. http://www.sommarskog.se/temp/15.mp3
    This song was written in 1931, but it was its inclusion in a film
    that this recording is taken from that made the song immortal.
    a) Name the song. (4p.)

    As Time Goes By.

    b) Name the film. (4p.)

    Casablanca.

    c) Name the actor singing (2p.)
